King of the County, Martinez, CA

My first and second attempts at competitive bbq!

King of the County 2008

This was my first attempt at competition bbq. A special thanks to my good friend Al of Team Smoke Ring Circus for bringing me on board his team and showing me the ropes. That team has now become Hog Wild and I'm proud to still be part of it!


Results: Well we had a great time, but didn't get to take the walk to the stage for trophy. I learned a lot, and met some really fantastic people. Everyone involved in these competitions is friendly and courteous. To bad there aren't more people like this in the world!



King of the County 2009

KotC 2009 was the birth of Smokin Fatties BBQ Team! I'm still competing under Hog Wild for the KCBS sanctioned events, but figured it was time to see if I could go it alone for the local competitions.


Results: I took 3rd place in chicken! My first walk to the stage, and my first bbq trophy. I wasn't completely happy with my turn in on chicken or ribs, but the bird was good enough.
